The United States Honor Flag

The Alaskan Review

   The United States Honor Flag flew over the capital building in Juneau yesterday. The flag was once flown over Ground Zero in New York City after September 11 and now tours around the country paying tribute to those who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

Today the flag went to Hoonah to honor the two slain police officers.

   The recent tragedy of the officers murders has caused a strain on local police departments which have redily volunteered manpower to cover the shortage in the small town. The Hoonah PD only had 3 people to begin with, and the recent shooting leaves only the chief of police John Millan.
